Reliable, versatile trainload services for major goods consignments

When you need to move bulk quantities of goods, DB Cargo UK offers trainload services, allowing you to book entire trains for exclusive use.

Book whole trains for major consignments
Booking a whole train is the most cost-effective way to quickly, safely and sustainably move large volumes of product around the UK or into Europe.

The UK’s largest wagon fleet to meet bulk demand
We operate the largest fleet of locomotives, hoppers, open-box wagons and other specialist wagons in the UK, providing our customers with high capacity and the capability to move bulk products over long and short distances.

Supporting major infrastructure projects
We have the proven capability to provide large-scale transport and materials handling services for major infrastructure projects, with past experience including the Heathrow expansion, the Olympic Park and Crossrail projects.

Rail wagons for every product type
The sectors most commonly requiring trainload services are the metals, coal and construction industries. We have key relationships with all major European wagon manufacturers and are the largest provider of construction services by rail in the UK. The range of wagons in our fleet means we can offer haulage services for many product types, from cement and aggregates to steel sections and scrap metal.

Door-to-door supply chain solutions
When you work with us, you don’t just get a rail haulage service, you get a complete end-to-end supply chain solution. That can mean door-to-door deliveries that include not only trains but also road haulage; as well as loading and unloading services and terminal operations.

Our industry expertise means that we understand your market and can tailor our services to work seamlessly with your supply chains. Of course, rail freight offers considerable environmental benefits over road haulage, including up to 80% lower CO₂ emissions, helping to reduce your carbon footprint.
